Vishal Bharadwaj's 'Pataakha' starring Sanya Malhotra, Radhika Madan and Sunil Grover that released on Friday, September 29 has been garnering good reviews from the audience but has not generated a good box office report as compared to Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma's 'Sui Dhaaga'. However, one should remember that the makers and the actors of 'Sui Dhaaga' attended a lot of events in order to promote the film and grasp the attention of the audience. Reportedly, 'Sui Dhaaga' received a fair start of around 25% while 'Pataaka' on the other hand received very dull collections ranging from 0.05%. Taking to Twitter, Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted "#Pataakha Fri ₹ 90 lakhs [875 screens]. India biz... Had a lukewarm start at the start of Day 1 and should grow over the weekend... However, the growth has to be multi-fold since the starting point has been extremely low"

The movie is based on the short story, ‘Do Behnein’  written by Chetan Singh Pathik. The director has adapted the story into a well written visual narrative. The cinematographer Ranjan Palit has done a brilliant job in setting the location and imposing the characters on the audience with multiple close-up shots. He has mainly made use of close-up shots since the verbal rivalry between the sisters is at the core of the film. The shot adds impact to the fight but has maintained that the audience does not get too intimidated. The film helmed by Vishal Bharadwaj is a simple tale, which poses as an analogy of a major issue. The film is raw, colourful and dusty and definitely worth a watch. 


So grateful.😇 Pataakha is out! Book your tickets right away!😁
